Docker

Application Containerization

Docker is a tool designed to make it easier to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers. Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies, and ship it all out as one package.β€Œ

Xano leverages Docker containers. Docker’s virtualization technology provides Xano the capability of running the components (PostgreSQL, PHP, Redis, etc.) in the same environment each and every time. This allows a consistent environment for development, testing, and production because the technology runs inside the Docker Engine instead of on the server.
